Reader's Choice: Your Favorite Italian Restaurant in Hoboken is...

Share your opinion with us!

Updated: The readers have spoken. According to our non-scientific poll, your favorite Italian restaurants are Augustino's and Leo's! Results are in the poll below. Do you have another favorite place? Let us know in the comments. 

Whether it's a plate of pasta or a slice of pizza, Hoboken is known for excellent Italian food. And now, as part of a new weekly survey, we're asking you what your favorite place is. 

Patch is starting a new feature of “Patch Favorites” where you can vote on your favorite local business in Hoboken in a category presented each week.

While we came up with an initial list, we encourage you to post any businesses we missed that fit the “Favorite Italian Restaurant” category in the comments below.

Voting closes at 9 a.m. Friday. Ties will be broken by whichever business has the most positive comments below, and reviews on Patch Places. We will announce the winner at noon Friday.

The restaurants to vote on include:

Be sure to vote for your favorite place to enjoy Italian food around town, and tell us why it’s your favorite in the comments.

Editors Note: Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.

How come Leo's is not on the list? that's my favorite

Arthur's Tavern???? .Seriously, you have Arthur's, which is a steak house, but not Leo's or Margherita's?? Margherita's has great, fresh pasta. Leo's is pretty good too, love their bar pie with everything.

what about margheritas???
Frank D. February 27, 2012 at 03:07 PM
I agree with the folks above, what about Margherita's and Leo's?? Leo's is a Hoboken staple and not to be included on the list shows that the Patch doesn't know what its talking about! Arthurs Tavern, really.......not worth voting!

if you are going to put Arthurs Tavern on this poll, might as well add a half dozen other non-Italian places.

I have to agree with everyone. How is Arthur's included in this discussion? Other places not on this list are Delfino's and Trattoria Sapporito.
Lorenzo Hoboken February 27, 2012 at 03:21 PM
Leo's and 3A's need to be on here.
Lorenzo Hoboken February 27, 2012 at 03:21 PM
as well as Trattoria Saporito
Steve Sternberg February 27, 2012 at 05:46 PM
How can you have a survey like this without having Leo's on it.
Claire Moses (Editor) February 27, 2012 at 05:53 PM
Commenters -- your thoughts have been heard -- Leo's has been added!

Excellent! Not to nit-pick but there is only one "s" in Grandevous". And, while we're at it I agree with "speechlessin hoboken" - Margherita's deserves a nod.

Cafe Michelina is the best food for the price. Service can be wonky, but it's that same all over Hoboken. Benny Tudino's Pizzeria Italian food is no better than anyone else's in town, you go for the pizza...and ignore the attitude behind the counter.
Redrider765 February 27, 2012 at 07:23 PM
Or you go elsewhere where there is less attitude.
Barbara February 27, 2012 at 10:43 PM
Amanda's serves great food as well as Zach's on the corner of Willow and 2nd. Try it!.
Marie Rodrigues-Oldham February 28, 2012 at 05:24 PM
I can't believe Balbo's isn't on this list? Hands down best pizza in the area. Pasta dishes are amazing too. I don't order from anywhere else at this point.
Melissa Napoleon February 28, 2012 at 11:18 PM
Agreed!! Trattoria Saporito should probably be #1....just saying..

Neither of those places are really an Italian restaurant. A good ziti dish, does not an Italian restaurant make.
Dennis Maloney July 11, 2012 at 02:21 PM
There is Italian and then there is real Italian. I love it when I see this "Yuppie" Italian mentioned a lot. Most of the so-called Italian Pizza Pie places do not even make their own dough for the pizza. They buy premade stuff and build a pizza which anyone can do. Even the sauce/gravy used to be different at each pizza pie place. Balbo's and Leo's has been around for years, in fact more years then I can remember and I am kinda mature. Now when I ask for a pizza pie, I get looks like I am from a foreign country. Most of todays pizza pies are premade stuff.
